At both ietf and BBF this past week a frequent topic of conversation
was how to get more open source involvement in standards orgs...

... and one counter-thrust of mine has always been to get more
standards org members involved in open source, because that dialog has
to go both ways.

I thought I would point at several useful upcoming conferences in the
hope that perhaps there would be some members of ietf/isoc "out there"
planning some outreach in this regard. proposals closed I think CFP due aug 5

That is just the first 4 that came to mind, and they are respectively,
in america, australia, berlin, and japan. There are approximately 1
zillion other conferences in that world that an ietf/isoc/bbf/etc
member might find interesting, or have something of their org they'd
like to get in front of a wider audience.

The best list I know of, is here:
